That's the way.

You must talk to the printer manufacturers to see if your printers
have any character sets that include the Euro symbol. Older printers
won't, and the graphics languages supported by some printers don't
allow you to define custom characters.
If your printers do have alternate character sets with the Euro
symbol, then the manufacturer should be able to tell you which
one it is, and the command in the printer's command language to
select that character set.
Then you can either use the command-line option in HP's Jetdirect
software to select the character set, or write a filter to send
the PCL command to select the character set, or modify the interface
script to send the PCL command.
